AWS re:Invent 2017: Deconstructing SaaS: A Deep Dive into Building Multi-tenant Solu (ARC407)

SaaS presents developers with a unique blend of architectural challenges. While the concepts of multi-tenancy are straightforward, the reality of making all the moving parts work together can be daunting. In this session, we move beyond the conceptual bits of SaaS and look under the hood of an SaaS application. Our goal is to examine the fundamentals of identity, data partitioning, and tenant isolation through the lens of a working solution and to highlight the challenges and strategies associated with building a next generation SaaS application on AWS. We look at the full lifecycle of registering new tenants, applying security policies to prevent cross-tenant access, and leveraging tenant profiles to effectively distribute and partition tenant data. We intend to connect many of the conceptual dots of an SaaS implementation, highlighting the tradeoffs and considerations that can shape your approach to SaaS architecture.
